The uplifting song is permanently featured in the “Where Do We Go from Here” Gallery of Mississippi’s new Civil Rights Museum. It was most recently chosen as an official song for the Hinds County School District.

Performing his live soulful, bluesy music as he has done for over 20 years, pianist Andrew Pates will provide entertainment throughout the evening.
